Detective Pikachu to make an appearance at Rove Hotel

The Pokémon will hang out with fans ahead of movie release

Detective Pikachu to make an appearance at Rove Hotel

If you’ve ever wanted to ‘catch ‘em all’, you may just be able to catch some Pokémon at Rove Hotels where Detective Pikachu in the flesh will be making an appearance in celebration of his movie release. You can also take part in a scavenger hunt and find other pocket monsters to win exciting prizes.

Kiddies and teens will meet up and interact with the ever-popular Detective Pikachu on Saturday May 4 from 4pm-6pm at Rove Downtown, where he will be challenging everyone to a Pokémon Scavenger Hunt taking place until Saturday May 11.

You can find more than one type of Pokémon, each winning you a different prize. If you get Charizard or Detective Pikachu, you win a free stay for two at any Rove Hotel. For a free iftar for two, you’ll have to hunt for Bulbasaur. You can also get your hands on a pair of movie tickets or coffee if you’re lucky enough to locate a Jigglypuff or Snubbull.

From Thursday May 9 onwards, Rove Downtown’s Reel Boutique will be playing Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, so grab a popcorn and get ready for an adventure with the most-loved yellow character of all time (sorry, Big Bird).

Instead of training and Poké battles, the film follows Tim (Justice Smith), a former Pokémon trainer who goes in search of his missing father, the detective Harry Goodman. In his search he is joined by Detective Pikachu with whom he, somehow, is able to communicate with. Together they roam around Ryme City, a metropolis where Pokémon and humans live in harmony, to find clues.
We’re finally becoming Pokémon masters. Pika, pika…
